January started 2019 off with some great new music, and the trend seems to be continuing strong here into February. This week’s number one spot goes to Sharon Van Etten with her new album Remind Me Tomorrow.
Top 5 Charts:
1.) Sharon Van Etten – Remind Me Tomorrow
“Remind Me Tomorrow is just as the name implies, the world is beautiful but there are times when you are too busy or overwhelmed to enjoy and experience that. Van Etten explores new ways to deal with emotions in our grab-and-go lifestyles.” Read the full review written by Miranda Roberts HERE
2.) James Blake – Assume Form
Assume Form is James Blake’s fourth studio album, and by far his most accessible to date. Blake’s gentle vocals and minimalist beats are beautifully complimented by a number of notable features, including Rosalía, Andre 3000, Travis Scott, and more.
3.) Toro Y Moi – Outer Peace
(From previous week) Contemporary hip hop, funk, Eurodance, and ambient elements can all be found on the 10 songs that make up Outer Peace, the newest release from Chaz Bear’s Toro Y Moi. The album manages to push boundaries while not taking itself too seriously, and has a lot of fun doing so.
4.) Deerhunter – Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?
(From previous week) Bradford Fox’s philosophical and unpredictable songwriting has had a wide range of sounds and instrumentation backing him over Deerhunter’s 7 previous full length albums, and Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? gives him a clean, well put together environment to express these thoughts clearly.
5.) Maggie Rogers – Heard It In A Past Life
Maggie Rogers exploded onto the scene with her viral hit “Alaska” in 2016. Heard It In A Past Life serves as an introduction to Roger’s work as an artist, as well as a way for her to reflect on the past two years of her unique experiences in the industry.
